New Domain

DC Bachelor was started on impulse. One day I came up with the idea and three days later I was a local blogger. I didn’t think it would last as long as it has, or else I would have put more thought into the name.

I’m changing it for a few reasons:

1. I hate DC. There is nothing about the city of DC I like more than other cities I’ve been to.

2. I don’t live in DC. I have never lived there and I don’t ever want to live there. When foreigners ask me where I’m from, I say Maryland, not DC. Technically, I’ve been faking all this time.

3. I don’t use the word ‘bachelor’ in real life. Being single is a lifestyle that changes with time, not a single defining word.

So I decided on a domain that is boring but timeless, that will still work no matter where I end up. (The ‘V’ stands for the first letter of my last name and not the Roman numeral five, though I don’t mind being called Roosh the Fifth.)

The content and layout will remain the same. DC Bachelor will stay open as a permanent archive. If you haven’t already done so, point your RSS reader to, which should still work.

    It’s a shame you still don’t have control over

    Excellent. Because going to a “DC Bachelor Happy Hour” sounds way too close like going to a speed dating service.

    DCB is an easy acronym to use, but I understand the need to reinvent yourself every once in a while. Going back to your roots (e.g. Rooshlog) eh?

    And what’s a good online housewarming gift? A new smilie?

    I’m always curious why people live in/near a city that they hate for more than a year, but there seems to be an awful lot of people like that all over this country. But Roosh, didn’t you go to high school AND college in Montgomery County? Do you really hate it? Really?

    Good deal. I think this will open you to writing up about more topics. I could be wrong. But the posts of yours I enjoy most are the ones about your travels and the books you like. Not so much the dating. Good luck.

    I like watching the style evolve over the years.

    Great idea–this site has been much more than “the life of a bachelor in dc” for while now.

    I hate it…..

    hey pal, congrats on the new move to this domain. awesome two first posts, keep up the ass-kicking work!

  12. Laura November 6, 2006 at 2:55 pm

    Faking it all this time, huh?

  13. Sudamericana November 6, 2006 at 3:03 pm

    I like it… in line with Jewcano’s comment, until now, whoever used a computer after me and read your link among the addresses, surely thought I was checking a dating service website. Made me look pretty desperate, so I’m glad about the change.

    wow. Almost 10 years later, your domain comes full circle. roosh -> RN -> RL -> RLUG -> DCB -> RV.

    Hope you keep on writing 🙂

    a quick piece of advice.
    don’t be too hasty to toss a mythological entity.
    change is good boxoffice, but only within parameters.

    Takes me back to my RL days.

    Hmmmmm…. Roosh… rooshter…. rooster… cock. OK, now I get it! 😉

    Not that I really ever call you anything, but I really do enjoy the idea of calling you Roosh the Fifth. It’s classy. Congrats on the new domain…

  19. Phil November 8, 2006 at 4:27 pm

    I prefer RooshIII the best – the one where he and Apollo blog together.

    I hear RooshVI is going to really suck.

    Congrats on coming clean. I’ve seen your name on people’s blog and was like, ‘huh?’ so it’s good that you’re out in the open. Soon, I will be too.

    At any rate, welcome to Maryland as I live here too,….but we’ll see for how long. 😉

    Never in lived in DC? I think you might like it. I loved Adams Morgan
